Well, Nicolas volunteered to take over maintainership, so I'd say his
git repository at can be
considered the new upstream. He has not set up wiki, or bug tracking

Personally, I would prefer to keep a bug tracker in addition to
discussion through this list to keep a record of things. I would also
prefer to have a real "project website" rather than a plain github page
that serves as hub, collecting all information and links. I'd be willing
to host that site if nobody else does.

The noise came mostly from me as I plughed through the code :). I'd love
to continue development, but that hinges on a) me creating a test suite
and b) Nicolas pulling patches :).

Would be nice, I am just trying to understand the intricacies of
offlineimap and while the code is quite clean, it's not always that easy
to understand what happens where for what reasons.
